A quintet of ditties with accompanying midis

School Bus

There's a school bus

Ahead of us

We'd better honk at them



Bees in the Trees

           Bees in the trees

                  Fmaj7  G
           And my pet is wet

           Froggy is as groggy

           As a froggy can get

Baby can't see me!       Daddy can't see me!

I Bought Me a Horse

I bought me a horse

The horse pleased me

Fed my horse under yonder tree

Horse goes neigh, neigh

Sheep goes bleigh, bleigh

Pig goes griffy graffy

Goose goes lissie lassie

Duck goes quack quack

Hen goes simmy sac simmy sac

Guinea goes paw track paw track

Cat goes fay-lo-fay-lo-fee

Swing Set


Swing set

C      Am  C

Swings get wet

Bb                        C

When it's been raining outside


But not

C    Am   C

When it's hot

Bb                      C

Then all the swings are dried



Whether or not it's rained

Your questions will

Be answered and

Everything explained

Short & Tall Tales

Pondering power and restraint

Well, it's two per cent vim

and ten per cent vigor
when you gotta go up against
somebody bigger'n' you

but you do it when you gotta
if you got no choice.

Half the time you'll find that

as a matter of fact
it's not how big you really are

but how big you act;
        B                                    Gb
you can beat 'em with both hands behind your back
if you can use your voice.

  Keep in mind what Will or was it Roy Rogers might've said
  Doncha argue with a fellah with a foolish head
             Abm                    F
  'Cause the onlooker can't rightly tell
     Which of you is the fool
Mindful Webworks | Short and Tall Tales | 2 Percent Vim, page 2
Well now I'm goin' on record

as a pacifist
but I'm a hot-tempered guy

and it's hard to resist
throwin' punches when a fellah
is punchin' my eyeballs in.

I realize there's times

when y'gotta fight
but let's make it not here

not with me not tonight;
it's not fightin' that I mind
it's just a stupid waste of time
is a sin.

Love's Lost and Found

Another song about how depressing love can be

Cm                       D
She picks you out from   all the men
D             Gm
Suddenly in   love again
Gm                      A
You  can't believe it   feels so  true..
A                   Dm
All the same it's   not for you
Dm                      E
You give your all and   then she leaves
   E                          Am
|: Love is just the   Game of Thieves :|
Am                   B
You wonder why you   feel this way
B             Em
Finally you   hear her say she
Em                              Gb
Loves you, too; the   game's be-gun
Gb            Bm
In the end,   nobody's won
Bm                      Db

It can be hard to live in faith.

'Tisn't easy being Agon-donter

                 Bm       G        F#m
Heaven won't you come and raise my roof

        Bm        F#m           G
Gets so hard to believe without seeing

             D7         G
Send me your undeniable proof

           D           Ddim         D
(I seem to keep losin' track of the troof)

       Bm            F#m         G
Yes, I know the mere fact that existence exists

        Bm          G                F#m
Or that love can be found means it's true

     Bm         F#m       G
But what I want has to be incontrovertible

         D7            G
I want a postcard from You

           D         Ddim        D
(Won't you send me a postcard or two)

       Bm      F#m           G
I've already received some Enlightenment

        Bm         G               F#m
Figured out how to tell right from wrong

    Bm          F#m        G
But keeping the faith is exhausting I need

       D7             G
To be shown what I've known all along

        D              Ddim      D
(Send a sample of what makes You strong)

     Bm             F#m     G
I've monitored your miracle courses

     Bm         G      F#m
Understand intellectually

  Bm             F#m        G
I know there are angels and midwayers everywhere

D7                          G
Can't they just stop by for tea?

          D         Ddim        D
(I'll schedule them Thursday at three)

A lullabye of ultimate reassurance for the little ones and anyone else who may need it.


God's in Heaven

   All's right with the world

God's in Heaven

   All right

God's in Paradise

   So are we

      It feels so nice

Settle down, baby tonight

Settle down, baby


Each bird a-flying

   Daddy knows by name

Each bird a-flying

   Daddy knows

Leaf and river too

   He will teach

      each one to you

Sleep little baby tonight

Sleep little baby


Everywhere you're walking

   Momma knows by name

Everywhere you're walking

   Momma holds

Singing Love Supreme

   All day long

      and through your dreaming

Happy dreams baby tonight

   Happy dreams baby

[Repeat first verse]
